HELIKON Disc – 240 & 180
£1,695.00 – £1,995.00
New for 2018 the Helikon rear Disc wheel combines the superior aerodynamic qualities of our race proven Wave Lenticular designs with an incredibly light weight for a clincher format disc. At a feathery starting weight of just 1025g the Helikon is in fact the lightest Lenticular (non flat) clincher disc wheel currently available. An all new twin contoured design allows compatibility with almost every TT/Tri frameset out there while rivalling the killer aerodynamics of our current ‘Asymm’ models. Aerodynamics is of paramount importance when choosing a disc wheel but for lighter riders or those competing in sporting events lightweight can play a significant part in overall performance.
A one to one consultancy to determine the most suitable build specification is undertaken upon ordering and before manufacture. A bespoke service unique to Revolver.
WAVE LENTICULAR DESIGN
This design has aerodynamic benefits over a flat sided disc wheel while maintaining compatibility with cassettes up-to and including 11-speed. A sophisticated shape with a deep toroidal bulging outer rim that works best with wider tyres from 23-26mm, resulting in lower rolling resistance than with traditionally used narrower TT/Triathlon tyres without aerodynamic compromise. This outer bulge then flows into a larger central disc area which helps maintain laminar flow and results in the wave like profile we refer to as ‘Wave Lenticular’.
